Arsenal v Man Utd Bet Boosts: Martin Odegaard's form to continue in 7/1 shot

Ahead of what could be a pivotal match in the Premier League title race between Arsenal and Manchester United, we are offering a series of Bet Boosts including an enticing 7/1 shot.

Premier League leaders Arsenal (4/5) will be hoping to restore their eight-point lead at the summit against a fast-improving Manchester United side (16/5) who will be eager to get back to winning ways after conceding an injury time equaliser against Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park in midweek.

Sunday's contest at the Emirates will see the latest edition of a classic Premier League rivalry, with the Gunners and Red Devils famously battling it out at the top of English football in the early noughties.

It's been 14 years since either of these two English giants have won the league, when Man Utd clinched the title in 2008-09, and both sides have endured some difficult times following the departures of legendary managers Arsene Wenger and Sir Alex Ferguson.

It would be hard to argue against this Sunday's meeting representing the strongest-looking matchup between these two teams since the peak of their respective successes under Messrs Wenger and Ferguson two decades ago, with Arsenal leading the way in the Premier League and United sat in third place under new boss Erik ten Hag.

Both sides are unbeaten in all competitions since the resumption of domestic football following the conclusion of the World Cup in Qatar, with Arsenal having gone the whole Premier League season unbeaten at the Emirates.

Indeed the only time the north Londoners have tasted defeat in the league this season was to this weekend's opponents at Old Trafford, with a debut goal from Antony and a Marcus Rashford brace securing a 3-1 victory for United.

This result will give ten Hag's charges confidence going into this Sunday's clash, and a win for the away side would reduce the gap in the table between the two teams to just five points with United still in with a shout of launching a surprise title bid.

Arsenal will be a tough nut to crack under manager Mikel Arteta, however, with only Newcastle having conceded less than the Gunners' goals against tally of 14 in the Premier League this season. 

It makes for an intriguing encounter on Sunday afternoon, and as ever we have you covered with a range of exciting Bet Boosts, including the appealing 13/2 shot below...

Backing up the Boost

In Martin Odegaard, Arsenal arguably possess the most in-form player in the Premier League at the moment, with the playmaker now priced at 7/2 second favourite behind compatriot Erling Haaland to be named PFA Player of the Year.

With his nation Norway having failed to qualify for the World Cup in Qatar, the Gunners skipper was afforded an extended period of midseason recuperation, and boy has it shown to have paid off for the 24-year-old.

Having scored a brace in Arsenal's final Premier League match before the World Cup, a 2-0 win at Molineux, Odegaard has scored twice in four games since the restart including a stunner in the north London derby against rivals Spurs.

Odegaard's form has been so impressive that Spanish giants Real Madrid have been reported to be considering a move to bring the Norwegian back to the Bernabeu, with the Norwegian having spent six years on the books of Los Blancos before a permanent transfer to the Premier League with Arsenal in 2021.

Already a key component of this swashbuckling Arsenal side under Mikel Arteta, Odegaard's role in Sunday's clash with Man United could be especially pivotal following Casemiro's booking for the Red Devils in their midweek draw at Crystal Palace which sees the Brazilian suspended for the match at the Emirates.

This represents a hammer blow for Erik ten Hag, with Casemiro having emerged into one of United's most important players at the base of their midfield during their impressive run of form in the Premier League which has seen them rise to third in the table.

As one of the best holding midfielders in world football, the 30-year-old is a master at sniffing out danger in midfield and making crucial interceptions to stifle the influence of opposing playmakers.

Indeed Casemiro would have been charged with neutralising the threat of Arsenal's Odegaard who occupies an advanced midfield position for the Gunners, and with the Brazilian now sidelined, this responsibility may now fall on the shoulders of Scott McTominay who does not boast the same level of defensive awareness.

As Arsenal's top goalscorer in the Premier League this season with eight, Odegaard may now just fancy his chances of adding to his account on Sunday against a Casemiro-less United.

With last weekend's north London derby the first time in nine matches there were under 8 corners in a Premier League game involving Arsenal, the Over 7 Corners market for this weekend's encounter with United also appeals.
